Celebrating six years of ownership

24th March 2013. Our friend Ron (who bought our Impreza wagon, pictured) takes us to collect our GT86!! That number plate looks too big!



And we get him home for some photos.






Black GT86 owned 7+ years and modified with Cosworth exhaust, brakes, supercharger and map. Also, Eibach Pro springs, OZ alloys, fast road geo, various cosmetics inc TRD spoiler, shark fin, Intec brake light, Valentis.

So here we are today, 24th March 2019. A few external changes, and under the bonnet looks a bit different. Oh, and it's a bit lower and sounds and rides different and goes and stops quicker, but feels essentially the same as it did six years ago today. We love it!!

Thank you. I imagine so, Matt. If the Boss says so, and I expect she will. She seems happy enough when she is driving it!

Our first meet, attended in May 13. Where are all those cars now? Steve (Kodename) - you were there. So was Faith. None of the other owners appear to be on here anymore.



Our first modifications May 13 - TRD Ducktail and BRZ fender garnishes. Both of these items were purchased before we had taken delivery of the car. Having extensively modified our Impreza Turbo mechanically and cosmetically over 13 years of ownership, we both said we were going to keep the GT pretty much "standard".




And where better to complete the "running in" than the roads of Wales.
